FREEING MINDS A Campaign for St. John's College
Sponsored by the Anne Arundel County Trust for Preservation, the lectures are free and open to the public and held in the Francis Scott Key Auditorium. In 2018, the topics center around the bicentennial of the birth of Frederick Douglass.
May 22, 6:30 p.m.
Kenneth Morris descends from two very important names in American history: he is the great-great-great grandson of Frederick Douglass and the great-great grandson of Booker T. Washington. Morris will share with the audience how the Douglass legacy has inspired his life and contributed to his work as a social activist. Attendees will also learn about the Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives (FDFI), Morris’ abolitionist organization that combines lessons from the legacies of Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington through education. As a culmination to his lecture, Morris will participate in a youth moderated panel that explores his experiences as a Douglass family member.
